Accelerator I'm telling -- in -- Lawrence and -- we're glad you're here we've talked about how to get hired.
What not to do when you're hired as an experienced professional how to operate on social media today.
And now we're gonna talk about what to do when you're fresh on the job your new.
You're trying to make an infraction Kate Rogers of foxbusiness.com.
For coming thank you for having me isn't more talk about today the first job mistakes to avoid yes -- a lot of social media.
But I want to know first of all.
There about six points you bring up in your -- on foxbusiness.com.
The number one I thought was very interesting.
Do not act in title.
Yes well Milan deals are always being described as entitled and those are people -- team to 34 kind of fresh on the job.
You want to check that entitled attitude at the door and you want to be seen as someone who realizes that you're there to serve your employer if you're working for a paycheck and that you want to bring value to the company.
You're not know at all you may be more experience on the attack and then some of the older people like you're working with because we grew up on social media -- -- -- that added he'd.
At the front door when you get that first job they did can be kind dead irreversible I have seen people unfortunately maybe they don't know.
Again they're acting that way exactly and it can -- really detrimental to your career trajectory if you're pegged as an entitled worker right off the bat it's not good.
So certainly try and -- this stereotype -- yeah I absolutely excellent so.
No -- you should also listening and of and ask ask questions and I think that rolled into the entitled attitude here -- weren't.
You're new you don't know everything don't act like you know everything and there's no fault and asking questions and also listen to the -- that people are giving you because.
You want to learn and the only way you're gonna get better at your new job is by.
Asking those important questions and trying to learn everything you can about your new environments.
You know I know you do a lot of reporting for fox -- -- he talked to a lot of different people starting small businesses and way beyond.
What are the types of people giving this advice these -- career coaching is okay and also hiring recruiters so these things that they're looking for in people that they want to bring his million down today yeah absolutely excellent -- -- the third thing here.
Do not commonly.
And do you not coming.
Looking I'm -- -- -- -- especially if you're coming from.
A college and that camp this mentality you may be sleeping till noon wearing jeans wearing things that are on professional hopefully if you're on your first -- you -- a little bit -- know the the drill site coming in early.
Work -- where Cardin between Dmitry you look polished you're new employer likely -- you don't have tons of money to spend time for professional looking closely you can invest in a few staples.
Break out the iron.
And look put together when you coming.
That's -- and we come from such a generation that it's pretty.
Casual as it is it is business casual is the new standard at work are there any sort of tips that the experts say -- you well hey let's sort of fixate on if they need accurate thrower good coaches say to to look to people in the company that you expired TU one day have a job like they have so even -- -- casual.
Office environment if if people around you Wear jeans may be -- up a little bit Wear -- blazer or.
Look a little bit more put together you don't want to Wear jeans and a teacher don't be the most casual person in the office even if it is a casual environment.
So unlike what many -- people we may hang out with say.
Actually look like -- track yes.
Exactly I've found that next thing is gossiping in the workplace big fat and a -- definitely don't gossip and it's really hard when you're new on the job because the only thing you have in common with the people around -- is likely work.
-- you want to fall victim to talking about work all the time.
Definitely don't be seen as a prospered because that won't look good to your higher ups and if you fall in with the crew that is gossiping all the time.
Know that -- -- really toxic and start to distance yourself from because it doesn't look good especially when you're new on the job.
And -- -- good if you're just trying to make new friends on the office -- I know -- unknown -- now and it's really like I said very easy because you don't really know anyone else that well yet and the only thing you do now is the work environment that you -- share.
But try to distance yourself from that especially early on various smarts not taking risks is something to avoid but we've also talked about -- Not really trying to be too presumptuous -- how little -- I think that you should.
At the right time no raise your hand throw your hat hearings say you -- -- help out on a big project yourself out -- a little bit to test the waters.
People I spoke with said that if you take a risk -- -- kind of -- -- you're still really young you're starting out people will forgive you for it but if you do -- as it may work out your -- you may get your name attached -- big project he may get to work with someone that you really admire so it.
-- -- -- Sure it will I think that's right that you want to get yourself out there meet more people get away especially if you're an electric company -- the only way to do it the last.
Do not stay -- -- wrong job now locked up.
-- at this and thinking about this already I'm not saying quit after -- -- but the colleges that I spoke with said if you working in job first six months and you're miserable you're really not happy you don't have to work there for the next ten years corporate mentality has changed people don't get hired and worked some place until they retire you know your first job is not your final job anymore.
Use it as a steppingstone take what you can and learn from it never quit before you have another job I think that that's important as well especially in this economy seven point 4% unemployment -- -- -- -- Exactly and especially for younger people -- it's even harder to get a job but no they're not stuck there forever and if you really aren't happy.
Then start looking for other opportunities -- we have a question from age you are.
They say you can never get a second chance to correct a first infraction here.
They -- keeping your mouth shut and your mind.
So ban what's your assessment on that haven't -- -- yes I think you'll probably say that that's true you the first impression really matters and I think that that's circles back you coming in early working Lee.
Looking polished and not gossiping in the workplace -- think of those things -- really matter and I agree.
While Kate Rogers reporter foxbusiness.com I know you're always an early lead -- -- -- she is certainly taking the advice that she's dispensing.
